called this meeting to order. as we are all well aware of the health care law acquires businesses that employ 50 or more full-time or full-time equivalent employees to offer health insurance or pay an employer mandate penalty for tax. a critical issue is the definition of employee. but equally important is the issue of which and how many employees are attributed to the business. the answer may be simple for one business with a single owner. however when an individual shares ownership of multiple entities or when a business has multiple owners, the answer is less clear. today we will examine the process of determining whether businesses are considered a single or multiple entities under the health care law, which requires business owners to aggregate employees and could suggest the business from the obamacare employer mandate. according to the national federation of independent business, 39% of small businesses with 20 or more employees: at least 10% of one or more other businesses. to determine if the threshold of 50 or more employees has been met in these situations the health care la

a common tactic used for terrorism. i think this is immoral for people who are law abiding citizens. please discontinue the no parking signs. >> ted, take it. my apologies. >> i support to increase the areas for restricting parking to these large vehicles. there is nothing in the law passed when homelessness was not the issue that gives dispensation to people just because of their so-called housing status. so, when you live outside the law, you must be honest. i would further urge as you look at the expansion of this, that one of the areas that has in fact been affected by moving, pushing the ball around is that these golden gate park panhandle, either side north or south of it. this is areas where i have seen crazy things going on. in addition, when you drive on fell street towards masonic there are large advance parked there. they stick out from the parked row of cars causing drivers to have to negotiate into the adjoining lane to get around them. it's simply dangerous. some of the crazy things i have seen on more than two occasions where people are stringing extension cords from

. frankly the nationalization immigration law, once you labeled someone on a terrorist, it's very difficult to take them off. and that did happen as you said in 2008, it took an act of congress. we actually had to pass legislation, condoleezza went to the hill and asked them to pass the legislation and finally president bush signed that law, signed that legislation into law. but today, i understand from many high ranking anc officials homeland security continues to treat some of them as needing a waiver to get into the united states, which is an embarrassment and what secretary rice said today, at the time, we can't allow president mandela, a man of his stature to be continue to be treated as a terrorist by the united states. we needed to do this and do it before he passed away. but also, we need to honor his memory today by also making sure that homeland security honors of legislation that secretary kerry and for that matter senator obama when they were both senators, helped to pass. so, yes, officially they are off the terror list but the way in which homeland security continues
